Unison Research Unico Due Hybrid Integrated Amplifier/DAC
Unison Research is an Italian manufacturer that makes amazing tube and hybrid tube/solid-state equipment. The Unico Due is the latest hybrid amplifier from Unison Research and benefits from UR's decades of experience in design and production technology. The amplifier maintains all the best qualities that made its predecessor a runaway success and introduces new and enhanced features.
The electronic circuitry of the Unico Due has been completely redesigned. While maintaining the qualities that made the Unico range such a legend in the audio industry, key improvements have been made that are nothing short of ground-breaking. Firstly, the power supply circuits have been enhanced thanks to a substantial increase in filter capacitance size (80,000 uF) and to a new high quality shielded and proprietary power transformer. The new power distribution system of the audio power output stage combines space optimization and superior circuit solutions.
The output stage is incredibly stable and can handle very demanding loads. We have been enjoying this amp with a set of Revel F32 towers which are known for putting the pressure on lesser amps. Using MOSFET outputs and a full tube front-end, the sounds coming from this amp are wonderful. Full with lots of body and energy to every note.
This very lightly-used and well cared for unit comes with remote, manual, and original double-boxed packaging. Can be shipped with ease.
